go for broke and worry about repaying when the time comes.
Um i dunno. I think this is a very complex decision with no clear cut answer. One of the staff attorneys (yes, not an associate, he makes less than 70k/yr) graduated from GWU and has 170k in debt. He is basically paying rent, food, car insurance, and school debt.
Debt is something that u should deff think about, 150k+ ia a scary amount of money. Nothing to scoff at, esp if u have UG debt.
